Sally Solomon (played by Kristen Johnston) is a fictional character from the television sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun.
Role as femaleEdit
Prior to arriving on Earth, the Solomon's had some sort of contest to determine who would be male or female (their species makes no such differentiation). Sally, a highly-trained, decorated, combined combat specialist/military tactician, became the woman, something she found to her disliking, at least at first.
Being in a body that was driven by stereotypical sitcom-female archetypes, Sally's innate penchant for violence was often at odds with the prejudices and natural tendencies associated with her sex. From this disjunction, most of the humor with her character is derived. She eventually manages the awkward harmony/truce with the human shell so classic of all the Solomons as the season progresses, coming to utilize her wiles to enjoy life as a female.
Of her forays into the romantic, her most successful was with Officer Don Orville, the first real example of martial authority she encountered on Earth. Their relationship lasted for half the series, ending when Sally discovered that Don's real passions lay in baking, as opposed to law enforcement, and she whipped him up into a force to be reckoned with, thus taking away the spark they once had.
